The Smart Suitor

Their horoscopes had matched.  

He had come with his family to see her.

She was on the wheel-chair. 

"I met with an accident last week. I may never be able to walk again..."

"That’s absolutely fine with me", he said.

He picked her up in his arms. 

"Marry me!" he proposed.

This was not as per her plan.

She had managed to drive at least a dozen grooms away using the same tactics- falsely projecting self as handicapped. 

He truly wanted to marry her! 

She didn't know that he had seen her dancing on the terrace a short while ago!

  1. Dear Anita,

    This one has her number, doesn't he?



  2. Well, if he is willing to marry her no matter what, maybe he's the one!

  3. Well, she's going to have to marry him or lie to him. I hope she makes the smart choice :)

  4. Oh well, she was bound to get found out eventually and at least he's keen! :)

  5. Seems like both of them keep secrets .. oy ... ;)

  6. A relationship built on deception. A match made in heaven. Maybe not.

  7. A lie detector should top their wedding present list!

  8. They sound like a right duplicitous couple. Sounds like they deserve each other

  9. If I were him and I knew she was lying, I'd run...


Your words mean a lot to me.
